We had looked into ivf before getting my TR done because DH's SA isn't great. It's not horrible, but it could use some improvement. I did all the bloodwork, and with my AMH level and AFC, it turns out I would not be a good responder to ivf, and my RE recommended the TR as a better alternative for us. Of course, he probably thought we would have him do the TR but he charges a lot more than Chapel Hill, even with what we had to pay for travel and hotel.

I keep forgetting that this is Memorial Day weekend. I'm going to visit my Dad tomorrow. He's dying of liver failure and is on hospice, so we try to see him at least once a week. Luckily my sister is with him, but we are trying to figure out a way to afford having an aide come in at night so she can get more rest. I had offered to stay with them since I work as a CNA, but he would rather have someone who is not family help him with those things.

My package of Wondfo OPKs arrived in the mail and are waiting for me under the sink. I really want to use one just for fun, even though I'm only on cd4 so I know it will be negative. DH is a restaurant general manager, so I had him bring home a bunch of 2 ounce portion cups so I can use them to dip my Wondfos. I don't usually O until cd15-17 so I am trying to be patient.

Navy - You are very fortunate to have had the procedure at Chapel Hill. I always hear the best outcomes from the procedures there. I talked to the doctors and wish I chose them rather that who I saw. I'm in California and thought that I was better off going with someone local. I was completely wrong in every way. I was left a mess and my doctor never saw me again after the surgery. I was just allowed to see the staff. All for $10,000.

I loved chapel hill. Its a shame Dr Berger is retiring. He's helped so many women be mommies again!
Anyone ever heard of another hcg a week after the trigger shot to help implantation? Thats what my doc wants to do. I don't think I will be able to test and get a real result until the week before fathers day, by then i could have an ectopic...and shouldve already started blood work. Maybe I will take a test every day to watch it get lighter as the shot gets out of my system and then I will know when it gets darker if Im pregnant? I am terrified of ectopic.

AF started for me today. I'm going to start temping tomorrow morning.

Brandy - Keep us all updated on your IVF journey. I hope to start IVF as soon as possible. I don't know how we are going to be able to do it money wise but I know it will happen.

Yes it's common. If you were me..... I would test out the trigger shot with hpts till it was negative which which is normally about 10DPtrigshot the booster gets out of your system much much faster usually 36-48 hours because it is a much lower does. This one you can test either out of your system as well or if it doesnt fade CONGRATS!

KMFX for you cj!

I'm glad I was able to have Dr. Berger do my surgery before he retired. I'm really happy with my entire experience in Chapel Hill and I'm sort of sad that the TR is all done now. I suppose I spent so much time thinking about it and planning and worrying that part of me feels a bit empty. I'm really looking forward to TTC, and I even peed on an OPK today even though I'm only cd6 and I know it wasn't going to be positive, but having the TR is really the last thing that I could actually control. Now it's all up to God. I'm really praying that we get a take-home baby, but DH said I have been happier since we finally decided on the TR, and he told me that alone is worth the cost.
